    Thieving scum spoil Roy Wood gig

    He confirmed this morning that he had his stuff. I don't think he tends to leave his gear anywhere!
  2. Inverse log pots on the volume. Man this amp is so loud and it's only on 2 of 10. Of course, it doesn't really get that much louder past that point. Whilst humans are involved, theres always going to be scams.

    Yes - you shouldn't buy one because they are trash. In no particular order - 1. Awful compounder - the treble becomes harsh, brittle and fatiguing. The bass is significantly cut. 2. No headroom on the input on the transmitter. That thing clips and goes into audible distortion if you just look at it. 3. Mono. And playing in mono is no fun if you have the opportunity to play in stereo. 4. The build quality is so cheap, its embarrassing. 5. The RF performance is atrocious. It's great if you like drop outs or the sound of tuning into a radio station... or the sounds of wasps. 6. it runs on 9v batteries and enjoys sucking power. So you have the option of running rechargeables - which don't give you a decent length of operation... or burning through a 9v or 2 for every gig. Not great for the environment. The money you spend on 9v could be put towards another system that runs on rechargeable AAs. 7. Fixed frequencies - making it near enough impossible to coexist with any other wireless you may have in the same part of the spectrum (typically channel 70) 8. Absolutely horrendous limiter on the receiver - is that a ducker mixed with a distortion pedal? 9. Comes with awful 112 headphones... if you want to know exactly how bad the mix is when it arrives at the receiver, these headphones will do a good job of mashing up the final sound just that little bit more. 10. You can get equally bad performing wireless inear systems for a lot less money. You are paying a lot for a poor system just to have the privilege of buying the tried and trusted name of "Shure". 11. Do I need to go on? They are an absolute crime to inears - and for a lot of people who "have tried inears and it was rubbish", the PSM200 is a common factor. I'm sure its the same systems that are being bought and sold on eBay as people find out exactly how awful the PSM200 is. Go wired, or go PSM300 (with pro pack), EW300 or PSM900 (appreciate this is quite a significant price increase - but great wireless that is comparable to a hardwired connection costs money!)

    In which case, you should have a great time on the ZS10s.

    If you like sub bass, it’s likely you are going to be looking at some serious inears to get the low end response with some serious headroom. The best thing to do is give the ZS10s a go. You’ll be surprised how much those headphones can handle in the bass - and if you decide you need more, well... you are probably looking for a quad balanced armature in the lows. Having said that, some “bass heads” that I know, find the UE6s more than ample. Depends where your benchmark is I guess.

    Ah yes, another “I tried in ears and they sounded crap” candidate in the making.

    All good stuff - glad to hear that they are living up to expectations! The bad news is though... new band... those boys run PSM200s....

    The KS10s should be a significant step up in terms of headroom. You should be able to get more bass response with less chance of distortion. They are a bit of a no brainer option given their cost... I don't think there is any cheaper way of getting the sort of headroom you'll crave as a bass player. Of course, I could go on about better isolation, customs etc... but thats a world away from £33. Anyway, get them ordered up and report back on how you find the ZS10s!

    He told me... and DB - but I think that could be a completely different story... :-o

    Have you planted the Helix Stomp seed yet? I love how you have named your P2s too. I'm going to call mine Stan.

    Cool - I think the analogue split pre your mixer is still going to be the most practical in the real world. Every venue/situation is going to be able to be cool with analogue. I presume you are talking X32 rack - be aware that you only get half the I/O on board. You'll need a break out box, or something like a Midas core with a s32 or an X32 with a s16 or sd16 (stage box) to get the full I/O available to you. I guess your requirement on that front is all down to the size of your band.

    Less than you may think... https://www.gear4music.com/PA-DJ-and-Lighting/Behringer-P2-Ultra-Compact-Personal-In-Ear-Monitor-Amplifier/26FN £26 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KZ-ZS10-Ear-Earphone-HiFi-Sport-Headsets-4BA-1DD-Dynamic-Hybrid-Headphones-New/253789948978?hash=item3b170f4c32:rk:1:pf:0&var £29.85 And then an XLR/Jack to Jack of your choice - and maybe an adapter for your mixer depending upon what you have. This setup will give you a balanced mono feed or an unbalanced stereo feed - again, depending upon how many free auxes that you have. If you check out the big inears thread - , you'll see that this particular combo is becoming the basschat staple introduction to IEMs... and it gives a pretty good sound with a good amount of headroom (those ZS10s are 5 drivers per side!))
